Storyline

Flip the Frog jumps happily from lily pad to lily pad, crossing the pond in order to get to an outdoor nightclub in the forest. Flip is the featured performer, and the crowd of critters is happy to see him. As the insect orchestra plays below, Flip dances on a tree stump. Later, he plays the piano as a mouse accompanies him on the violin. The piano cries during a sad song, and Flip has to blow its nose. Flip offends his instrument by caressing its leg with a bit too much familiarity. The piano kicks Flip, and the frog retaliates by punching the keys as he plays. Flip's violent performance leads to a crashing finish. Written by J. Spurlin

Not a great character, Flip is only slightly engaging
19 November 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The first Flip the Frog cartoon - an Ub Iwerks production shortly after leaving Disney and Mickey Mouse behind - sets up the tone for the whole series. Flip (a frog without a great personality) dances and cavorts about with his animal friends, including a suspiciously Mickey-lookalike violinist.

The main plus point in favour of 'Fiddlesticks' is the fact it is in colour. That, and its use of sound, mark it out as more interesting than some of the B&W Flips which were to follow. Unsurprisingly, this character wasn't a long-stayer - after three years he was more or less replaced by the more jaunty Willie Whopper.
